Week 3 FantasyDraft DFS Lineups

It’s been a busy week here at The Daily Fantasy Stadium. We were fortunate to escape the onslaught of injuries that occurred last week. Our only downfall was The Play of the Week: A.J. Green. If you click the link on his name, you’ll notice he didn’t do diddly in Week 2. whomp whomp

There’s no use dwelling in the past, though. After all, we built our bankrolls two-fold on DraftKings and earned a sizable profit on FanDuel and FantasyDraft as well. Our GPPs were right on the edge, but without Stefon Diggs (and sporting AJG) it was tough to stay in the standings before Monday night ended. We’ve doubled our efforts internally to ensure that mortgages, car payments, grocery bills, beer coolers, and vacations can all be taken care of.

Below are the Week 3 FantasyDraft DFS Lineups. They have been redone four times this week to accommodate injury updates, player ownership, starting lineups, and gut checks. There isn’t a player on these lineups that hasn’t been cross-examined by our DFS staff. Over 50 man hours have gone into making the lineups, not counting media consumption or subconscious daydreaming about roster construction (which never really stops). We hope you’ll join us this week as we boost our bankrolls and set sail for mid-season DFS glory.

Cash Lineup

Position Player Opponent Salary Rating
QB Drew Brees vs. ATL Falcons 14900 5
RB Melvin Gordon @ IND Colts 10900 5
RB DeAngelo Williams @ PHI Eagles 14100 5
WR Julio Jones @ NO Saints 18000 5
WR Stefon Diggs @ CAR Panthers 10200 4
TE Jason Witten vs. CHI Bears 8000 4
Flex Tajae Sharpe vs. OAK Raiders 9200 5
Flex Phillip Dorsett vs. SD Chargers 8700 4
DST Miami Dolphins vs. CLE Browns 6000 5

From top to bottom, this is a secure cash lineup. If posting head-to-head contests isn’t your thing, enter this into a Double Up. FantasyDraft has $5-$10 Double Ups. Some can be entered multiple times. We frequently run a train with our Double Up lineups, meaning we enter the same lineup multiple times. That way if one cashes, they all cash. Last week the DFS staff was able to ride their “cash trains” into a 105% ROI.

We love FantasyDraft. While other sites exclude the Monday slate or only score receptions for half points (or not at all), FantasyDraft is there to give us double flex appeal while allowing us full slate exposure and maximum point potential. Cue the Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. Drew Brees is as safe as it gets this week and could easily finish as QB1.

Our favorite RBs this week for PPR scoring are Melvin Gordon (Bo) and DeAngelo Williams. Both RBs will be heavily featured in their offenses; both are facing soft defenses, as well. Bo has benefited from the injuries to Danny Woodhead and Keenan Allen. Now he’ll take over as the work horse in San Diego. Williams has one more game before Le’Veon Bell returns which means, it’s now or never for the 33-year old.

Our WR corps is rock solid. Julio Jones practiced in full on Friday and will be lighting up the Saints secondary who are without Delvin Breaux and really any DBs. Stefon Diggs is the Minnesota Vikings offense now that Adrian Peterson is on season-ending IR. Sam Bradford has eyes for the second-year slot WR, so we’re slotting Diggs into our WR2 without hesitation.

Old man Witten is still in town, so with the Chicago Bears coming to Jerry World, we couldn’t turn down Jason Witten with a rookie QB under center. Our value plays are Tajae Sharpe and Phillip Dorsett. The Titans are without Delanie Walker and face the NFL’s worst defense in history, the Oakland Raiders. Dorsett is filling in for the injured Donte Moncrief and figures to see a lot of target against an inconsistent San Diego squad. Finally, we finished it off with our Cash Defense of the Week, The Miami Dolphins. Just two words: Cody Kessler.

Last season we cashed in big on Week 3 GPPs. Our key to success was targeting games that had been overlooked by the fantasy community. You may have heard previous GPP winners say they “zigged where others zagged.” We’re not much for designs here, but we’re all about seeing our name at the top of the leader board. Ask Andrew Ferris what it feels like to go to sleep with $1,000,000 next to your name (and then ask how it felt to finish with less than $1,000). We know what it takes, and we won’t be persuaded by the masses.

That being said, we know where our bread gets buttered; always in New Orleans. Drew Brees and Julio Jones are our big game stack. We know Brees will light up Atlanta’s secondary, but with Willie Snead as a game-time decision, we can’t be confident with who. Atlanta may not light it up, but no one stops Julio Jones, especially in prime time. We’ll happily take these two with us in to battle and hope that others waste their salary looking for Monday monsters while we scour the Sunday slate.

He’s Bo, fo’ sho’, a born Gordonian; Arian-librarian of the field we’re throwin’ in. (Thanks to Bo Burnham.) Seriously. Gordon is going to wreck havoc on the Colts, so we paired him with a riskier RB with upside, Jeremy Hill. The Bengals face Trevor Siemian, an inexperienced QB, in his first road game. We expect Marvin Lewis to have his team ready to charge after their division loss to the Steelers. The Broncos can be run on and Hill could fall into two TDs on Sunday.

Allen Robinson and Mike Evans are elite WRs without elite performances so far this season. Evans may have shown his stuff Week 1, but he’s capable of dropping 40 on opponents (especially short ones like the LA Rams). Robinson has faced some tough secondaries and was schemed out of the previous two weeks. With the Ravens charitable cornerbacks, we had a tough time not playing Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Dwayne Allen is the likely recipient of red zone targets, increased work load, and defensive mismatches this week when the Colts host the San Diego Chargers. Allen hasn’t hit it big yet, but he’s clearly the TE1 in Indy and with T.Y. Hilton questionable, Donte Moncrief out, and Phillip Dorsett inexperienced, look for Luck to rely on his veteran TE early and often. In the same game, Tyrell Williams will benefit from a high-scoring affair with little defense on either side of the ball. If things go right, we’ll all be dancing in the end zone this weekend.
